looking for some advise when it comes to patching MS Office and quickly - Currently I have a config profile deployed to the org to help manage this but it seems to be slow..
Im also looking at "Installometer" and currently going through testing but ... Im just looking to see if there is anything else out there that can help me update MS office quickly and easily on the mac..
Are you in Jamf Cloud and able to use Jamf App Installers?
You could download the package/s from here and upload it for Patch Management. https://macadmins.software/
Maybe you could open the Microsoft AutoUpdate application for Macs that need Microsoft Office Updates. This would nudge them to update. Or you could leave that option in Self Service.
Use Microsoft Auto Updater, configure it and forget it. You would need to update the packages in JAMF occasionally, but MAU will handle keeping the installed agents updated. IF you are on JAMF Cloud, you can also use JAMF's Mac Apps and tell it to keep everything updated.
Thanks for all the replies ..
Im currently using MAU with a config profile but the profile is pretty basic -"com.microsoft.autoupdate2" version - 4.59 .. When you say " Delayed" are you pointing to "Update check frequencey"??
or am i missing something or have a really old config profile??
@rkelegha1 Take a look at the MAU related blog posts by @kevinmcox for some great coverage of the ways you can configure it to apply updates: https://www.kevinmcox.com/tag/microsoft-autoupdate/
The one on curated deferral channels is especially useful if your org likes to do staged rollouts: https://www.kevinmcox.com/2021/10/microsoft-now-provides-curated-deferral-channels-for-autoupdate/
